The data is not available in bulk in the sense that you have to download budget information for expenditure and incomes separately.

No explicit notice or information has been found explaining the terms of use of the data set.

QA comment - change to bulk, because the files are available under the same link (as we accepted in other countries). The data does not have a license or any terms of use. i have changed it to now.

Reviewer comments

I have changed openly license to NO, since we could not find the license.
